Quartier Latin to hold pre-Afrofest World Cup event



On June 11 the world’s eyes will be watching Africa’s first ever hosting of the FIFA World Cup.  Quartier Latin and Music Africa will join forces in a musical celebration at the Opera House, 735 Queens Street, East Toronto. Co-presented by the Organization for Social Entrepreneurship in Africa (OSEA), proceeds from the concert would be used to support Entrepreneurs in Africa.

The Congo has produced some of the most vibrant and joyous music to emerge from Africa. Quartier Latin, from the Democratic Republic of Congo, continues the tradition. Featuring members of Kofi Olomide’s legendary band who played on his most groundbreaking albums, Quartier Latin is a red hot 12-piece group that’s been blowing the roof off concert arenas in Africa, Europe and North America.

Tickets $30 ($25 for students) available at the door; online at June 11 event on Music Africa’s concert page –
